A dew shield is an essential accessory that protects your optical tube from excess moisture forming condensation on the corrector lens. A lens shade also helps block out stray light outside the path of the telescope for better viewing and astroimaging.
This versatile dew shield can accommodate both 6” and 8” Schmidt-Cassegrain optical tubes. Choose the outer Velcro strip for larger tubes and the inner strip for smaller tubes to customise your fit. Also compatible with the 8” EdgeHD optical tube.

Ordered the dew shield and it came the following day. Fitted nicely on my Celestron Evo 8HD and did the job perfectly.
Bonus point: it makes you scope look almost double the length that it normally is

Managed without for a while but this has made all the difference. Should have bought some time ago!

I checked the scope dimensions on the Edge 8 and RASA 8 were the same and purchased this for the Astrograph. I had to cut some extra slots for the wider saddle on this scope, but it fits on nicely and moreover the split design means you can secure the cables through it that attach to the Camera in this optical arrangement. Looks as well made as the AstroZap versions, would definitely recommend.
Fits well and a great service

Brought this for my Skywatcher 200P hoping it would fit and with the option of returning to FLO if it didn't and was pleased to find it did. Its well made and a snug fit. I've not had chance to test the anti dew ability yet but confident it will help so just 4 stars until then.
Great service from FLO in replying to my questions ( answered on a Sunday night just a 1/4 of a hour after I asked!!!). and quick delivery in these difficult times.

I love buying stuff from First Light Optics. The turnaround is amazing, this item arrived the day after it was ordered. If it is something a little more sophisticated, they are always fast and helpful in providing advice.
